Writing Intent

Broad Oak Primary School ensures that every pupil will become enthusiastic writers through a variety of writing opportunities.


To achieve this, our intention is to ensure that:

  • All children will develop an understanding of grammar and punctuation and be able to apply this accurately to their written work.
  • Children will use discussion in order to learn: they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas.
  • Children will spell words confidently and accurately: to begin with, pupils should use their phonics knowledge before moving on to applying known spelling conventions and learning the spellings of common exception words.
  • Children will write legibly and fluently in our school’s chosen style of joined handwriting (see our school’s handwriting policy).
  • Children will produce effective, well-presented written work.
  • Children will express opinions, articulate feelings and formulate responses to a range of texts both fiction and non-fiction using appropriate technical / descriptive vocabulary.
  • Develop powers of imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness in all areas of literacy.
  • Any children not working at an age related level will achieve additional support.
  • Children identified with spelling as a barrier to learning will receive additional support.
  • The quality of teaching and learning will be at least good in each class.
